The problem with streaming services is that you can accidentally discover that Fun Lovin' Criminals recorded a cover of Witness (1 Hope).

TIL the WWW originally had a logo, and nothing else is better at expressing the naive academic techno-optimism from the 1990s than a design that looks hand-coded in PostScript and that slogan at the top.
